Commentary: Who exactly does McCain think debate gambit will fool?

John McCain doesn't like televised debates. He prefers town hall meetings, the informal Q-and-A sessions where he can engage the people directly. Wednesday, McCain announced that he wants to skip Friday's first presidential debate because it's in the "national interest" to deal with the impending financial situation. These facts are not unrelated.
